"This will be Americans coming in - private sector Americans, not the U.S. taxpayer - private sector Americans coming in to help build out the energy grid", he said.

Kim's nuclear test site, which he has generously promised to "shut down", was damaged so badly after North Korea's latest tests that it has been declared unusable, according to some Chinese and American scientists.

The top US diplomat did not elaborate, but his comment could refer to the type of assurances North Korea has sought in the past. In each case, North Korea gets an end of sanctions, partial withdrawal of U.S troops from South Korea and an undetermined amount of economic aid. The fate of Korean-Americans Kim Hak-song, Tony Kim and Kim Dong-chul had been among a number of delicate issues in the run-up to the first-ever meeting of USA and North Korean leaders.

But Beijing is keen to avoid being sidelined in the wake of Kim's historic summit last month with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and ahead of his upcoming meeting with Trump in Singapore on June 12.

Pompeo said the United States would not be willing to invest taxpayer dollars to help the country, but was willing to "lift sanctions" to pave the way for private American investment in North Korea's energy, agriculture and infrastructure sectors.

"It depends on North Korea", the realtor said.

Pressed in a separate interview on whether the US would seek regime change, Pompeo said "only time will tell how these negotiations will proceed". Pompeo praised it as "one step along the way". "They are in great need of agricultural equipment and technology", he said on CBS' "Face the Nation". "It means getting rid of the uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing capabilities", adding the process would also need to address North Korea's ballistic missiles. "But we are also very much interested in operationalizing the commitment as quickly as possible", Bolton said. I think we need to look at their chemical and biological weapons programs as well.

While some have characterized our President's foreign affair philosophy as "predictably unpredictable" or a doctrine of "maximum pressure", one constant holds true, President Trump is a seasoned negotiator who brings a lifetime of business experience when he sits across the table from foreign leaders.
